Welcome to Our Hospital

Start Your Journey to Recovery

The Institute for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery at Jupiter Medical Center utilizes the most advanced surgical methods in order to help patients lose weight and keep it off. Each of our procedures are conducted using laparoscopic methods—meaning major revisions to your gastrointestinal system can be made using only 5 or 6 small incisions. That means faster recovery and faster results.

As part of the Jupiter Medical Center family, our facility has some of the strongest credentials and most cutting-edge resources in the field. We are accredited through the Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program, a program founded by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery. All told, that means our program has been recognized for high standards and consistently positive results—both in our surgical procedures and our multidisciplinary approach.

  • There Are 4 Benefits to Gastric Bypass Surgery
  • Dumping Syndrome: Physiologic feedback that is caused by the presence of concentrated sugars in the small intestine. This includes pie filling, chocolate, candy, cake, and other common desserts. After gastric bypass, patients experience nausea, diarrhea, and elevated heart rates when eating these foods, deterring them from poor eating habits.
  • Malabsorption in the Small Intestine: Less calories are absorbed by the body, leading to a “lower” calorie count for every meal. This is a result of bypassing 150cm of small intestine, where many digestic enzymes are located.
  • Less Stomach Volume: Because the stomach is partitioned, patients feel fuller after far less food. The stomach, which is often reduced to the size of a tablespoon, allows patients to naturally limit their food intake without the need for willpower or dieting.
  • Smaller Intestinal Opening: A smaller opening means food passes more slowly into the intestine. By limiting the volume of food that can be passed, patients feel fuller sooner and are forced to eat more slowly. This also contributes to a more effective sense of satisfaction, which is the mental component of fullness.
